HOW WE CAN COLLABORATE WITH THERAPISTS AND SOCIAL WORKERS IN THE WORKPLACE
The From Storyboard to Print™ Narrative Therapy model enables people to feel heard and seen in a professionally printed book. The book is a beautiful encapsulation of their story for legacy and ongoing reflection.
By engaging in a group or individual From Storyboard to Print™ workshop, your clients will have an opportunity to develop her self-esteem and self-efficacy in a fun, challenging and achievable manner.
“What's Your Story” is a seemingly simple question that can unearth an internal a mine field of emotions. We run our workshops and individual sessions in very small, emotionally nurturing groups. People are offered safety and support to tell their stories - often for the first time. Each participant's voice is listened, heard and supported. We pride ourselves in creating environments where this can happen - no matter what the story is.
The books created by women who are victims of sexual abuse/assault and family domestic violence through the HERSTORY project exceeded all anticipated outcomes. A lot of research went into the project initially to ensure the outcomes for the women were therapeutic, not just enjoyable. Those involved were provided with a safe, protected and supported environment, where they could process their our trauma experience through the process of writing and illustrating their own books about their own stories. Some of the women told their story for the first time during the process of the workshop series, these women described the experience as cathartic and healing. Watching and listening to the women as they received their books at the book launch was an emotionally charged experience with tears of joy and words of accomplishment for doing something of their own for themselves. The sense of achievement was palpable for all members of the HERSTORY workshop including the counsellors and support staff. I am already looking forward to providing opportunities for more women to do a series of Book Incubator workshops! Well done Book Incubator! And thank you so much Kate for being the person you are who could be sensitive and nurturing through the workshop series.

HOW WE CAN COLLABORATE WITH TEACHERS IN THE CLASSROOM
From Storyboard to Print™ in schools is a well-designed program that aligns with the Australian curriculum.
• classroom packs of process workbooks and a teacher’s resource book to assist you in the classroom
• book week workshops and talks
• in school camps from pre-primary to year 10 students. We can come to you via Zoom or in person
• PD days for teachers
The Book Incubator Program is wonderful. I would highly recommend it. Our students completely engaged in the process. The school library has 29 new books and each year 5 author/illustrator proudly took home a copy of their own book.
